J.Lo, Nicole Kidman & More 2020 Oscar Snubs
The 2020 Oscar nominations are finally here, and while we’re thrilled for Joker (which leads with 11 nods), we couldn’t help but notice there were quite a few celebs and movies that were left off the list.
From Jennifer Lopez to Nicole Kidman, keep reading for all the biggest Oscar snubs of 2020.
1. Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo quite literally defied gravity playing Ramona in Hustlers. While critics applauded the actress’s performance, she was left off the list of nominees. And the internet is pissed.
2. 'Frozen 2'
OK, it’s important to point out that “Into the Unknown” is nominated for Best Original Song. However, many expected the movie to receive a nod for Best Animated Feature Film, since Frozen won the Oscar in 2013. Guess $1.5 billion at the global box office isn’t enough for the Academy.
3. Nicole Kidman
Although Margot Robbie is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Bombshell, it appears Kidman’s role as Gretchen Carlson was overlooked.
4. Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler was nearly unrecognizable as Howard Ratner in Uncut Gems, but his performance as the charismatic jeweler wasn’t enough to snag a nomination.
She recently made history as the first Asian actress to win the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical or Comedy Film for The Farewell. Sadly, she isn’t in the running for the Oscar.
6. Lupita Nyong'o
Despite her critically acclaimed role(s) in Jordan Peele’s Us, the actress was shut out of this year’s Oscar nominations.
7. Female Directors
Similar to the 2020 Golden Globes, the Academy failed to diversify this year’s Best Director category. *Sigh*
8. 'The Lion King'
Apart from Best Visual Effects, the remake received minimal nods during the nomination ceremony. For example, many expected Beyoncé’s “Spirit” to be honored for Best Original Song, but it was left off the list.
